by coulfrank | created - 9 months ago | updated - 9 months ago | Public

This large CD boxset covers many Japanese science-fiction movies, from Godzilla to Gamera, and also lesser-known exploitation titles from Toei and others. Here are the movies included.

Note: The movie ''Sunset Love'' (愛の陽炎, 1986) doesn't have an IMDB page, so I couldn't it put in my list.
